The Blues were whistled for three penalties in the first period, and though Nashville didn't pick up any power-play goals, the Predators scored twice shortly after their man advantages expired. Tarasenko had been nearly nonexistent in the last few games for St. Louis, and the team will surely welcome his return to the Blues' box score.

Leading 2-1 after Ryan Ellis' early third-period marker, Nashville couldn't hold back St. Louis' late push and allowed pair of goals to drop a 3-2 decision. But three seconds after Reaves exited the box, Nashville's Ryan Ellis buried his third goal of the post-season for a 1-0 lead with 9:26 remaining in the period. Cam Talbot stole the show for his team, and has Edmonton in good shape heading home.

Game four in the best-of-seven series is Wednesday in Edmonton.

Game 4 is Tuesday night in Nashville, with the Predators seeking to move one step closer to their first appearance in the conference finals.

Tarasenko netted his second goal of the game with just under four minutes to play to break a 2-2 deadlock as the Blues handed eighth-seeded Nashville its first defeat in six postseason games. "If you want to look up the stats and what he's done speaks for itself". "We're at home, which is a good thing, and we're looking forward to that game".

"Throughout the year, I think we're a little bit inconsistent, but when we played our game, we were always unstoppable", Wilson told NHL.com. However, the Blues have been a better road team in the last two postseasons, going 6-4 last spring and 3-0 this year. He now has eight playoff points through seven games. He did have two assists in the previous four games, which included a great individual effort leading to Joel Edmundson's overtime victor.

The Predators beat the Blues, 3-1.

The Ottawa Senators went up against the Boston Bruins and prevailed after a close six games featuring another five overtimes. Talbot was the difference in Game 2, making all manner of impressive saves while Anaheim dominated the last 30 minutes.

Nashville's other goal further epitomized why it's 6-1 in this postseason. I thought we did a great job of being patient and hanging on to the puck.

Justin Upton's fifth homer tied the game in the second. Anaheim's lone goal came off the stick of Jakob Silfverberg. They are really good at defense. "I guess we're still in for a long series and have to get rested and go into a tough building".

They cycled and cycled and even got a full line change in before working the puck to defenseman Roman Josi at the blue line, and his shot found the back of the net at 14:11.

McLeod gave Nashville a 2-0 lead with his first goal of the postseason just 2:29 into the second period with a backhander past Allen.

"Again, he's getting chances", Yeo said.

Nevertheless, the loss snapped the team's five-game winning streak to open the playoffs, which started with a surprising sweep of the Chicago Blackhawks. Tarasenko wasted no time, sweeping a quick one-time strike before Pekka Rinne knew what hit him-or rather, before he knew what slid right through his legs. The biggest thing is Vladimir Tarasenko is coming off of a 2 goal game.
